WORKSHOP DEMO STAGE 1


Each morning I head out for the workshop going West toward the beautiful Colorado Mountains. Littleton is very close to the foothills. This time of year there is plenty of snow on the mountains. What a great way to start the day.

This is the painting I started today for the demonstration. The paper is coated with a 50/50 solution of matte medium and water. It makes a very liftable surface. In fact, it is acting much like tyvek in many ways...beading up of paint initially, blending of colors, etc. Somehow I got a little carried away with color but having fun with it. You can see I purposely tilted the head in my version. Tomorrow I will finish it up. We are having a great time with this workshop. Hopefully I will be able to photograph everybody's painting at the end of the day. Tune is tomorrow night!

Looking forward to your paintings from the workshop. Enjoy! Why are you painting on paper that's treated rather than your tyvek paper? Just for the fun? I like this first one and see you posterized her photo, yes?

Yes, I posterized the photo among other manipulations. I didn't work on Tyvek because I couldn't provide it for the class and it isn't available in the art stores.

I would give anything to be able to take one of your workshops someday. Retirement will come. Where do you get Tyvek stuff?
